John Philips and son

Cincinnati , Dec. 27 - A Coroner’s inquest was held upon the bodies of John Philips and his son on Wednesday last in this city and the verdict returned was “Found dead suffocated by burning charcoal in a close room without a chimney where they slept.” Mrs. Philips was at the point of death when they were first discovered by the neighbors who broke into the apartment. She lingered some time but has since died. It is astonishing that after so many accidents having happened by the burning of charcoal in close apartments, that people in general are not more aware of the pernicious and deadly effects of it. –
